Let’s get to know Mr. Ford a little better…
Six Figure Mentors Member of the Month – Getting To Know Mark Ford!
Name: Mark Ford
Member Since: May 2011
Location: Staffordshire, UK
Membership Level: DEA BLACK; Six Figure Mentors Member ELITE
Why are you a member of the Six Figure Mentors?
I have spent literally thousands of dollars on various informational products and educational resources, working out the best of the best and what works. This ‘steep educational curve’ has also led me to join and try out a number of online marketing programs to the point where I eventually found and joined SFM in May 2011, and I can say that from my experience this is one of the best I have found on the internet.
My investment into the Company, shows the belief that I have in the digital business training that is provided, and I can highly recommend it to anyone that wants to get involved and get started.
The Six Figures Mentors has provided me with much more than I could have expected when I joined. To help me achieve my goals I needed an online business training program that would provide me with all the tools, resources, training, education, community and forward thinking I would need to be a successful digital marketer and internet entrepreneur.
I am on that journey now and the SFM has delivered on what I needed and I continue to grow as a person with the help of the SFM, the DEA and my mentors.
On the point of mentors, I have created a ‘Mentors Page’ on my website where I discuss more how all this worked out for me, but Stuart Ross, Jay Kubassek, the Community, and the many friends I have made in the business, have been instrumental in driving me forward to focus on achieving my goals at the end of the long winding road.
You can view my video testimonials by clicking here and going through to my SFM testimonials page, and to finish up on the question, why am I a member;
- The SFM is aligned with my mission statement at this link
- I wanted to replace my former full time income working as a lawyer
- I wanted to find something that would give me an automated cash flow business with low overheads
- I wanted a home business with no geographical ties
- Properties I find, until sold, create a lot of expense and I needed an online business for cash flow
- I wanted to be my own boss working from home and develop a laptop lifestyle
- I wanted an online business that would still pay me residual income while I was on my travels around the world
- It gives me everything I need to succeed with an online business all in the one place
- I can share what I have learnt with others to help where I can
- I can leverage the training, resources, software and tools to help my team build their internet businesses
- I can leverage the training, resources, software and tools to help other businesses with marketing online
- I can leverage the training, resources, software and tools to help my subscribers and customers develop their online business
- And…. all of the above
Favorite training in the back office:
The getting started modules, being someone that likes to work out systems for everything, I like the step by step approach to building the online business from scratch right through to a six figure online earner.
Tidy Url is a favorite, as this has really helped me stay organized with my affiliate links and it has also helped me track my marketing efforts online.
It is, however, a hard question, because it is difficult to pick out one area that is favorite training. The marketing modules are excellent and I learnt to build foundations whilst also marketing, not just do websites all the time.
Overall, though, I like the ‘all in one digital business training module approach’ and the Community that goes with it. We have everything we need and then it comes down to the actions taken by each individual.
Favorite marketing strategies:
When I packed up my 9 to 5 job back in 2006, after 29 years in the legal service, I set about building a property portfolio.
I now have 21 properties that I manage with my business partner and property manager.
I put most of my money into this business venture and this left me with very little for a marketing budget. Therefore, I had to initially learn about free digital marketing methods.
As a result I like to blog daily, do classified ads, work with message boards and forums, learn more and more about video marketing, and be prepared to network online.
I like to talk with people over Skype and see how I can help them with their objectives and show them how SFM and DEA can help them. Having generated a monthly income with SFM, I am now in a position to do pay per click and banner advertising.
What marketing funnel are you using right now?
I use several marketing funnels as I follow a multiple income stream strategy. I have funnels for newbies set up and in development as well as funnels for people just wanting to know more about marketing online, building websites and personal development.
I have a dedicated funnel set up for SFM and I use all the SFM landing pages and also my own landing pages.
To help build the relationships that are needed, I like to put myself between the subscriber and the SFM/DEA by sending people through to my own thank you pages.
My father died back in 2006 of lung cancer and I would like to dedicate time in the future to working with lung cancer charities and especially help out the hospice who looked after my father before his passing on.

Most memorable experience:
Coming through a divorce, not quitting and qualifying as a solicitor, passing the Law Society Finals in the UK.
Coming to terms with my father’s illness and getting myself out of the dumps to a point where I quit my job in September 2006, started a property investment and development business from home, and booked a trip to Sydney, Australia in December 2006 to follow my love of cricket.
I had the time of my life in Australia. I also went to the Great Barrier Reef and toured around Oz.
Starting up a further online business in 2008 and then going full time in 2010.
A good roast dinner, especially lamb, mint choc ice cream and anything but a very hot curry and hot spicy food.
What are you currently reading?
Stuart Ross’s Attraction Marketing, Strategies of the New Rich, The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, The Formula For Success In Network Marketing by Chris Taylor (Contains some good tips that can be used not just for network marketing, but also for networking online)
What are you listening to right now?
Heather Small, Proud – a great start to the day.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Nowhere, this business means that I don’t need a base and I can travel round the world and work from wherever there is an internet connection.
The answer to this question is any country that gives me a laptop lifestyle and where England are playing cricket.
What do you want your legacy to be?
That my son is left secure in life, that I have completed everything in my vision book and what is set out in my mission statement.
To have empowered and touched the lives of many people and help them achieve what they want from life.
Also, that I leave the world having helped as much as I can to make it a better place then when I first arrived!
What would your advice to the newest SFM member be?
It could be put simply as, just do it, don’t procrastinate, take action, go through the getting started steps and never quit on what you set out to do.
We do this to change our lives, therefore, focus on the end of the road, not the start or the middle, keep driving forward and think about what your life will be like when you get to the end of that long winding road. Ask yourself a question, what would life be like if I did not get to the end of that road?
Let your initial excitement last forever and not just for a few short months. Realise that we are building a long term sustainable online business and not ‘push button’ money.
I get that now, too!

I’ve been a member of The Six Figure Mentors from the very beginning and Mark has been an absolute pleasure to know. It comes as no surprise that he’s kicking ass and taking names (in the nicest possible way) because his work ethic is spot on.
He continues to help every new member feel at home and is always on hand to help, no matter what.
Well deserved mate. You give online marketers a GOOD name!
